Manny Ramirez: Greedy Fool or Crazy Like a Fox?
Yesterday Manny Ramirez, who almost single-handedly propelled the Dodgers into the second round of the playoffs last season, turned down the Dodgers’ latest offer of a $25 million, one year contract. Manny’s agent, Scott Boras, rejected the Dodgers’ offer because he’s confident there are other teams who will give his client more money for more years, yet no other offers have been made. With only a few weeks before Spring Training begins and the Dodgers seemingly the only team willing to spend big on Manny, is he being a greedy fool or the ultimate sly negotiator?

I'd Rather We Got Casinos (and Other Black Thoughts)
With explanations for why black weathermen make him happy (or sad), to why "brothas don't see UFO's," or his quest to replace "African American" with "chocolate," comedian Larry Wilmore is here for Black History Month, which, by the way, he thinks should be abolished, because how can twenty-eight days of trivia really make up for centuries of oppression?? In Wilmore's own words, "I'd rather we got casinos!"
